    Abysmal DTV sci-fi cheapie, almost Seagalian in its laziness. Cage, who spends about half of the movie sitting down, has never looked worse. Not fooling anyone with that jet-black Richard Nixon ‘do; his chest hair is Santa white. Why did I watch this?

    No one's written the Great American Novel yet, but James Gray went ahead and made a movie out of it anyway.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★½

    About as idiosyncratic, stylized, and wacky as these things are likely to get. Johnson really doubles down on the the original’s Kurosawa influences (lotta rain, cinders, and chanbara-style sword fighting here) and the hoodoo mysticism of the Force. (There are points where this almost threatens to turn into “John Boorman’s Star Wars.”) The action scenes—both of the Star Destroyer and light saber varieties—are some of the best in the series.
